it's very reassuring to read your post.  answers in-line.

same with both.  right now i'm putting more of my production tree back onto
an NFS server.  i think this is quite a reproducible bug: just check out a
subversion repo onto a distributed replicated volume - alter some files,
check them back in and repeat a few times.  within <20 mins we've been
getting input/output errors and stale NFS handles.  this is with both
NFS/fuse clients on multiple clients.

i hear you - and very much understand the value of reproducible bug reports
:)  i hope above example helps.  i've already sent a detailed report to the

i have chatted with them - and certainly would expect that to service paying
customers (which we are not yet).  i've had couple of chats - and they seem
like a very cool helpful switched on bunch...

again, thanks for responding.  good to know i'm not alone..
